I mentionned Dosemu, which is in contrib. Does dosemu depend on non-free
software? You can use it to run free dos programs. There are many free
dos programs. 

There are many doom engines in contrib. Again there are very many user
contributed levels (some of them are really good). Especially the
deathmatch type levels.

I realize that the main use of these programs may be to work with
non-free software. Yet they don't strictly depend on non-free software
in the same way that the installers that download non-free software do.
Or the many packages that are unusable without a non-free program.
